Offcourse she will have a bigger part in TTT then in FOTR.

She has to bring Anduril to Vigo doesn't she? And she has to fight off some orcs offcourse and some lovely scenes with Aragorn for a bit off romance

(I'm merely speculating as always in fact i know very little)

Yeah, that is pretty bad, but I think it's because they're going to make the whole Aragorn/kingship thing a huge part of TTT, and supposedly she has a lot to do with his inspiration to want to be king, etc...
But that's still no excuse...

I think Arwen on the TTT poster has more to do with "Hollywood" or advertising than anything else. Pretty faces sell.

Of course, we true Tolkien-ites are justly outraged.

Orlando Bloom, AKA Legolas.

It also has to do with star power. Liv Tyler is an A list star where as Mr. Bloom is a mere newbie. Although, you would think after the positive reaction to his roll in FotR they would have included him on the poster as well.

Bah! Salesmen! What can you do?

Second thing:
Merry and Pippin-Why aren't they on the poster?I think they are important for the storyline-now why did they drop them?

Ah... Okay, I have shown my ignorance. :elfbiggrin:

Swampfaye: If you look below Aragorn's head on the TT Poster, you wil find Legolas and his bow standing next to Sam the Stouthearted. :elfcool:

Merry and Pippin-Why aren't they on the poster?
Because they aren't as cute, and if they put the entire cast on the poster, it would be too cluttered and there would be no room for all the credits hiding at the bottom of the poster. :elfwink:

I'm outta here for the day, because my Sunday's almost over, and I'm too popped to poop. See you sometime on my Monday afternoon. :elfshocked:

But without the pretty faces selling the movie, Newline wouldn't get the money to fund the movies and we'd never get to see our favourite books on the big screen, and we'd be even more outraged, so maybe we should all just stop whining for once?
